He has written music for pianist Andy Costello, pianist/composer Marti Epstein, clarinetist Chuck Furlong, cellist Steve Marotto, percussionist Matt Sharrock, Castle of our Skins, Equilibrium Ensemble, Joint Venture Percussion Duo, Ludovico Ensemble, Music of Reality, and Transient Canvas. He holds a MM in Composition from The Boston Conservatory, where e studied under the tutelage of Jan Swafford and Andy Vores.
